After giving an introductory overview of a method for the evaluation the thermal transient measurement results with the help of the structure functions, the use of the method of transient testing is presented by application examples. The first example shows how to control the quality of the die attachment or soldering with fast transient measurements and subsequent evaluation. The second example presents how transient testing can be used to determine thermal material parameters; e.g. the effective thermal conductivity of printed circuit boards.
